Yesterday, I received my latest calendar from my local print shop in Auburn. The first batch of pre-sale orders have also been mailed out. There will be several more days of pre-sale orders being packed and shipped before I can continue with today’s current orders.
I’m still very impressed and completely obsessed with the high quality of this calendar, thanks to my friends at Finger Lakes Press in Auburn.
